How Therapy Can Help
Our emotions dictate and determine how we see the world. When you have control over your emotions you have control over your behaviour. When we become anxious, distressed, depressed or living in fear, the rational part of our brain is suppressed and the emotional brain takes over. We become time travellers trapped in the past ruminating, worrying, restless and agitated, driving us to despair with guilt, shame, secrets and unresolved business. Glimpses of the future may be glimpses of catastrophe, hopelessness and emptiness. As your counsellor and navigator I am here to listen to you, to guide you and to bring to your awareness alternative ways of being in the world. Collaborative counselling can bring insight and access to your imagination and your own forgotten inner strengths. You can change your life trajectory. You can find your personal path and spread it with peace, well-being, balance and spiritual wholeness.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is brief and time-limited. Over the course of our one-to-one sessions you will learn how to become your own therapist. You will be given the tools to help you become your own person. To take charge of your life. To understand why you, and only you, have brought yourself to this place at this point in time. To accept that everyone is responsible for their own behaviour.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking. You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength. (Marcus Aurelius 121-180 AD)
Person Centered Therapy
In person-centred therapy the qualities of the client-therapist relationship is the prime determinants of the outcome of therapy. The qualities of the therapist include genuineness, non-possessive warmth, accurate empathy, unconditional acceptance of, and respect, for the client. The client has the capacity for resolving life’s problems effectively without interpretation and direction from the therapist.
